Meet my BritMums Live Sponsor - Udo's Choice

Last June, my Twitter feed was full to the brim with excitable tweets from all those bloggers attending the BritMums Live two day conference. From the inspirational guest speakers and fab lifestyle and parenting brands to the practical sessions and of course, getting to meet the people behind the blogs you read, face to face, it looked like an awful lot of fun. But as Ethan was only five weeks old at the time, and my blog as you see it here today was just as much in its infancy, it wasn't something I could attend.

My love of blogging fully ignited and things took off quickly thereafter and ever since, I've been looking forward to the 2014 event. It looks like such a fun weekend and so beneficial too, I wanted to make sure it was a date in my diary.

And luckily for me, I have found a great sponsor who I am very pleased to be working with and representing at BritMums Live 2014 - meet Udo's Choice

I first heard about Udo's Choice from a great lifestyle blog a friend of mine is co-founder of - - within a natural health and beauty supplement post

As you'll no doubt be aware, I've been looking for any and every way to help soothe the psoriasis that's developed quite severely all over my body since I became pregnant with Ethan. I'm also really interested in natural products and I'm always keen to find new ways to give my diet and skincare a boost.

So when I read about Udo's Choice and their celebrity favourite Ultimate Oil Blend, I wanted to know more. It's a daily supplement packed full of Essential Fatty Acids which you add to your food to help give you the boost you need on the inside for healthy skin, hair and nails. Sounds great, right?

Well, Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is regarded as a beauty ‘secret’ of many celebrities like Jemma Kidd, Yasmin LeBon, Elle MacPhearson and Sophie Dahl. Jemma has been noted as saying: “Since using Ultimate Oil Blend my concealer has virtually been made redundant.  Now I use make up to enhance my features, not mask them.” What more could you want?!

Now for the technical bit. This unique blend contains omega 3 and 6 and the essential fatty acid 9 with a ratio of 2:1:1. It is made from natural, organic flaxseed, sunflower seed, sesame seed and coconut oil, as well as plant extracts to help keep skin moisturised and healthy. The Essential Fatty Acids in Ultimate Oil Blend are required by the skin’s cells to help them retain moisture and prevent inflammation. Ensuring you have enough Essential Fatty Acids in your diet will give a glow to your skin, lustre to your hair and strength to your nails, according to Udo Erasmus, a world renowned expert on omega oils and author of the book Fats that Heal and Fats that Kill.

All of this was music to my ears and when I started googling for more information, I was seriously impressed by the positive reviews. I spoke to the Udo's Choice team and within a couple of days, I had begun using the Ultimate Blend Oil. I've used this for almost two weeks now and I will be sharing my thoughts after I have completed the six week challenge, in order for it to have had time to make a real difference. I've been enjoying using this oil and it's very easy to add into your daily routine - I drizzle it over my lunch time salad or stir a little into my pasta or noddles in the evening. Simple!

In addition to trying this super oil, Udo's Choice will be my sponsor at BritMums Live so I will be working with them on a few things over the next few months and will be able to talk to other bloggers interested in natural health supplements when I attend the event.

I am very grateful to Udo's Choice for supporting me and the more I read about their products, the more interested and excited I become. 

Udo’s Choice also have the Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend in their range, which is a blend of seven active plant-based enzymes that are said assist the breakdown of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, soluble fibre, starch, milk sugar and complex sugars. 

Many enzyme products on the market contain enzymes derived from animal organs which only work in a narrow ph range and are typically only capable of digesting protein or fat. However, Udo’s Choice Enzymes have a wide ph spectrum allowing them to function throughout the entire digestive tract.  Along with protease, formulated to be active in the stomach, bromelain, which prefers the small intestine, has been added providing a superior formula for digestive health. The enzymes are designed to be taken before heavy meals to breakdown foods quicker and prompts digestion. 

There's also a range of Udo's Choice Microbiotics which provide good bacteria for the gut, with a different type suited to each member of the family, from newborns to grandparents. I'm really interested in this and will be sharing more on this topic soon.
